Tinder co-founders Sean Rad and Justin Mateen have contributed to the latest round of investment for an Australian startup that works to tackle sensitive men’s health issues.
MOSH raised a total of AUD$1 million during its most recent funding round, which included donations from investment firm Parc Capital, as well as the dating app’s former CEO and CMO.
Rad and Mateen first got involved with MOSH in April and have reportedly been “a huge asset” to the product’s early development as advisors. They have also committed to helping fund ongoing business requirements in the future.
MOSH co-founder David Narunsky said to Fast Company: “To get access to great minds like [Rad and Madeen] is unique. The significant value they have been able to deliver for us personally, as well as for the business, has been phenomenal.”
The idea is to provide modern men with professional advice and treatment for a number of male-specific issues, including hair loss and erectile dysfunction. Users complete an interactive questionnaire to assess their needs, before they are connected to a doctor for a video consultation and to work out a treatment plan.
When he first began to collaborate with the company, Rad expressed in a statement: “We are thrilled to be working with MOSH to help make Australia’s healthcare environment more accessible.
“The health experience is crying out for a change, and we believe in MOSH’s leadership team to deliver a simple and high-quality experience people are looking for.”
In June, Mateen also invested in a heavy machinery and equipment rental startup company called Tendered.
